Surprises me that this only came in at number 53. In my opinion it should have finished in the top20 at least, even in this very competitive field.
pS. I gave this a 10 during voting by the way.

"30mm f/2.8"? LOL, seriously? Even with a converter... I'm assuming 300mm, but image data says 24-70...

Anyway, really cool shot, well done!

Great action shot. Just a shame about the guy in the background top right isn't blurred by spray like the rest. Nothing you could do about that of course.

Wow! Fantastic. I love the frenetic action going on here. Great colors, spattering spray. The one rower's glasses have slipped halfway of his face but he has no time to even push them back on. Great choice of aperture with lovely out of focus background bokeh and sharp detailed frozen foreground action. 10

Fabulous action shot. Love that she's losing her glasses. And the intensity of the drummer is incredible.
